How to change the name of your Discord server
If you’re still figuring out the identity for your Discord server, you may need some time to settle on a permanent name. You can also change the name of your server at any time, though you might not want to do that if your server has accumulated a significant amount of members. As people join more and more servers, they will come to recognize your server by its name and icon. If you change your server name and they can’t identify it as such, they may end up leaving your server inadvertently. Let’s review how to change your Discord server’s name.
